Better with each start to date, building on his Nottingham success (10f, soft) with commanding victory at Sandown (10f) late last month. Expected to stay 1½m and well worth his place in this line up.

Successful twice at 1m 2f on good to firm and soft ground. Won on his latest outing when 7-4fav at Sandown over 1m 2f (good to firm) last month, beating Aktau by 5l. Has also won at Nottingham this season.

At The Races Verdict

JAPAN shaped like he needed the run when staying on into fourth on his seasonal return in the Dante and he stepped up considerably on that performance when going down by under a length in the Derby on his first run over 1m4f. He looks the pick of the Ballydoyle pair and sets the form standard for the rest to aim at. Private Secretary has progressed nicely this term, landing novice, handicap and then Listed races over trips up to 1m3f. This additional furlong promises to unlock further improvement from John Gosden's colt, though the main danger may be Pablo Escobarr, who could be closely matched with the selection based on the formlines involving his Lingfield Derby Trial conqueror, Anthony Van Dyck, who went on to beat the Japan in the Epsom showpiece itself earlier this month.

Timeform Verdict

A smart 2-y-o, JAPAN came on plenty for his reappearance in the Dante at York when third in the Derby at Epsom 3 weeks ago, keeping on well to finish ½-length third behind stablemate Anthony Van Dyck. He's open to further improvement and should prove tough to beat with conditions holding no fears. Private Secretary is upwardly mobile and feared, along with Pondus who is of a similar ilk.
